    Hi all ...

    I have a large chunk of sea lettuce that seems to have come loose from the rock it was growing on .

    My question , would this keep growing and if yes , does anybody have a particular affinity for sea lettuce .

    Thanks

    WOW...that looks like a lovely HUGE Lettuce...I have a small Red One, but it's growing relatively slow...

    PS: Mine also came slightly loose, but seems to be unaffected... @JAJA might like it...know he was looking for Green MacroAlgae...

    It's not sea lettuce. It's a red algae, probably Titanophora. I had it growing very well for years until I overpruned it one day and the fish finished it off. Would love to get some again.

    That's what I thought...:p but I know the Halymenia sp are usually called Red Sea Lettuce..so I thought it was that..basically looks the same to me...:blush:..guess the "requirements" makes it different...?
